A busier, bigger and better show Staff Report Opening day of the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show was a story of more, more, more – more space, more boats, more exhibitors, and potentially, more business. According to Skip Zimbalist, owner of Show Management, the company that produces the show, this is the largest Ft. Lauderdale show ever, now stretching to more than 3 million square feet. The show also expanded farther north into Las Olas Marina and the Sailfish Pavilion at the convention center is 70,000 square feet larger. There are more exhibitors, and in terms of revenue, this will be the largest show ever, he said.

The docks were busy, too. Give the nice weather a nod for contributing to that, but captains and crew confirmed that they welcomed lots of visitors as well. Some were too busy giving tours to even break for our Best Dressed crew photos (see the ones we could capture on pages 4-5). Vendors were positive about the crowd on the docks and several companies that had been absent in recent years have returned. Smiles were plentiful and everyone seemed upbeat. Perhaps it was just traditional opening-day optimism. But perhaps it was much more. Lucy Chabot Reed , Tom Serio and Mike Price contributed to this report, editorial@the-triton.com.

When her captain was thrown overboard, crew member Heather Havens didn’t realize her actions would save his life. But they did, and the International Superyacht Society honored her with its 2013 Distinguished Crew award Wednesday night at its annual gala. Gary Groenewold, a vice president with Westrec Marinas, told the story of the rescue off M/Y Three Graces. While at anchor off the west coast of Florida, a “massive ship� came by at a high rate of speed, leaving a wake of about 7 feet. The captain was on the upper deck at the time and was bounced into something before being thrown overboard. Havens went in after him. She brought him to the swim platform where she discovered he was bleeding profusely from a hole in his chest. “In textbook fashion of her medical training, she held her hand over the wound,� said Groenewold, whose company sponsors the Crew of Distinction award every year. “She used her strength and mental fortitude to

keep the wound closed. Later, in the hospital, the doctors said if it wasn’t for her actions, he would have certainly died. We chose her because of her professional training and her heroic actions.� Westrec has sponsored this award since its inception. ISS honored the year’s best yachts for its design, including M/Y Stella Marris by Viareggio Superyachts as Best Power over 65m, M/Y Excellence V by Abeking & Rasmussen as Best Power 40-65m, and M/Y Cary Ali by Alloy Yachts as Best Power 24-40m. Among sailing vessels, ISS honored S/Y Better Place by Wally as Best Sail larger than 40m and S/Y Pumula by Royal Huisman as Best Sail 24-40m. For Best Refit, ISS honored the Feadship M/Y A2 refit by Pendennis. M/Y Stella Marris also won for Best Interior, done by Reverberi Design. Other leadership awards were given to Michael Moore of Moore & Company as Business Person of the Year, Giancarlo Ragnetti of Perini Navi with the Leadership Award, and Damen Shipyards for Excellence in Innovation.

CHECKING THE TIDE: Do you use Twitter?

#1 in crew travel Come see us in the Anchor Club Lounge at the Swimming Hall of Fame during the show.

www.flyissgmt.com info@flyissgmt.com

As manic as young people are for social media, we were surprised to learn that very few of the crew we talked to on the docks yesterday use Twitter. In the news recently as it prepares Deckhand Bongani Mabena M/Y Namoh 125-foot Cheoy Lee “Of course I do. I tweet every day to my friends to let them know what’s going on. You get to talk to people you don’t know.” Stew Monica Yoder M/Y Bread 137-foot custom “No, I just never caught on to it. I have a Twitter account but I never use it. None of my friends use it so there’s nothing on it.” Chef Cameron Carr M/Y Iroquois 164-foot Feadship “Hell no. It seems like Pinterest and Facebook would be better for following people. Am I Facebook obsessed? Yes. Everyone on our crew is. But Twitter, no.” 2d Eng. Jesse Schloesser M/Y Abbracci 155-foot Christensen “No. I have no use for it. I’m on Facebook sometimes, but social media is not a benefit to me. I don’t use it professionally.” Stew Lauren Tarpley M/Y Iroquois 164-foot Feadship “No. I just don’t know how I would use it. It might be useful if there was a chief stew to follow, like tips on things and where to go get flowers in port.”

to go public, Twitter is that licketysplit way of communicating with anyone who will listen. Most crew would rather just talk to their friends on Facebook. – Lucy Chabot Reed, Tom Serio Chief Stew Lina Palm M/Y Our Toy 120-foot Feadship “No. We never really got into it. I use Facebook; one is enough. I’m not going to be addicted to another thing.” Chef Angie Carosin M/Y Perseverence II 123-foot Oceanfast “No. I only use Facebook. It’s too much effort to be so social. I prefer face-to-face socialization.”

Deckhand Diane McKellar-Basset M/Y D’Natalin 151-foot Delta “No. I’m the least techie person you will find. I don’t have a smartphone and I only use Facebook on my laptop.” Chief Eng. Marc Leger M/Y Allegria 152-foot Hakvoort “No, I use the phone and call people. Facebook is great to keep in touch with friends and family and colleagues. Twitter is a waste of time.” Capt. Scott Lockwood M/Y Li-Lien 120-foot Heesen “This is my phone. It doesn’t do e-mail and no text. I’m a dinosaur.”
